Weeds & Seeds Energy Snack Bars
At the Back To Earth™ shop in Lavington we sell a Snack Bar Mix that is easy to put together by just adding a nut butter (or a nut-free alternative) and honey. If you don’t have easy access to the shop, don’t worry you can make this recipe using a regular size bag of Weeds & Seeds™ that is readily available at many local stores as well as from the online shop.
- 1 - 280g (10 oz) bag of Original Weeds & Seeds or Wild Berry Weeds & Seeds
- 1/4 cup peanut butter (or other nut or seed butter of your choice)
- 1/4 cup honey (local, unpasteurized)
Pour the Weeds & Seeds into a mixing bowl.
Heat the peanut butter and honey till just melted. Don't overheat.
Pour the melted honey & nut/seed butter over the Weeds & Seeds. Mix well.
Pour into 9" x 11" cake pan for a thinner bar or into an 8" x 8" cake pan for a thicker bar.
Pat down firmly with the back side of a clean spoon.
Let cool, then slice into squares.
The squares can be frozen (if they last that long!)
Recipe Variations: Add your choice of nuts, coconut, chocolate chips, seeds, dried berries (or whatever your taste buds like!) or add oatmeal if your family prefers a less seedy bar.
Recipe Tip: Line the pan with parchment paper before spreading the warm mix to easily lift the chilled bars out for cutting. Young kids will not be able to manage the large knife needed to cleanly cut the bars but you can ask their opinion on whether you chop them into squares, rectangles or even fun triangles. Reuse the parchment to wrap cut bars before placing in an airtight tin or container and freeze so they don’t stick together.
These Back to Earth energy bars are the perfect item to pack along for spring break adventures as a family. They are filling, awesomely nutritious, and a sweet treat for everyone to enjoy. Your kids will be proud to share them and tell friends they made them.
If they want to move on to a baked treat recipe you can use the same Wild Berry Weeds & Seeds to make a batch of our yummy Love Bites!
